be an executive to develop the trust that he's talking about, to the point where chris christie is one of his best surrogates. people look at the president and the guy who handled this hurricane and they look at the guy who said, even if people didn't agree with him, so that you can trust him. he won't give him any specifics, won't tell them what his tax plan is going to do. is he setting up the alibi? >> oh, sure. he had this big prediction in 2000 that bush was going to win by a huge margin, 340, 350 electoral votes. i forget the exact number. after the election, he said oh, no, it was the drunk driving thing that derailed us and made that election so close. wh it took the story away from medicare and social security. >> bob, how concerned are you about all of the shenanigans that's been played out by the republicans in ohio suppressing the vote. the long lines that your campaign with senator kerry experience in 2004. >> you're right about 2004. if you're a college student or an african american, you sometime haves to wait eight or ten hours to vote. >> it's great to have you wit

to the point where chris christie is one of his best surrogates. >> there's a coherent narrative and you're right about the storm being the last piece of that narrative. people look at the president and look at the guy who took out osama bin laden and the guy who handled this hurricane and they look at the guy who said he was going to do certain things, even if people didn't necessarily agree with all of them, he did what he said he was going to do. mitt romney on the other hand, won't give specifics and tell anybody what his tax plan is going to do. i don't trust this guy not to take away my home interest mortgage deduction. >> karl rove is now saying that sandy helped the president politically. >> he had this big prediction in 2000 that bush was going to win by a huge margin. and after the election he said, oh, no, it was the drunk driving thing that derailed us and made the election so close. what we saw in the gore campaign we were making huge process. we were hurt by the drunk driving thing because it took the story away from medicare and social security. >> how concerned ar

, these questions are rising in our minds, aren't they? does chris christie want mitt romney to win? this is something i've been wondering about for a couple days. does george w. bush want mitt romney to win? it's not so clear. and we do know that most of the people who have encountered this guy, a lot of them have come away just not liking him. and you just have to wonder why they're doing this. >> on the other hand, you have got bill clinton who has been so terribly effective for president obama, and no one predicted the storm was going to take that much time away from the president, but this has been a real asset for the president. >> it has, absolutely. >> so have we ever seen a former president work so hard for someone to get re-elected? >> no. i don't recall it. it's pretty astonishing and when you think of their history, which isn't all milk and honey, it makes it all the more interesting. you know, they had rough times in 2008 when obama was running against hillary clinton, and they both said some pretty tough things about each other, but they know that they need each other
